Program Details

A subset of the Networking Concentration at Lakeland Community College, the Microsoft Networking Certificate, is aimed primarily at those who have already earned a bachelor degree and wish to widen their educational foundation. Those who wish to learn the material without pursuing a degree may also be ideal candidates for this certificate. Microsoft certified professionals may be able to expect to find careers as programmers and web developers in this modern technology-reliant business world; most organizations require individuals to fill such positions. Students who earn this certificate should be prepared to take the Microsoft Certified Technology Specialist (MCTS) and Microsoft Certified Information Technology (MCIT) exams, which may potentially open doors to career options in a variety of settings.

This 22-credit certificate program is comprised of three 3-credit, one 1-credit, and six 2-credit courses, all at the 1000 or 2000-level. After an Introduction to Business class, students will take 1000-level courses providing instruction in areas of information processing, Security+ and Security Essentials, an introduction to Windows 7, and Network+. At the 2000-level, students will learn about the configuration of Windows 7 and various aspects if Windows Server 2008, including Network Infrastructure, Active Directory, and Applications Infrastructure configurations. Finally, those enrolled must choose between two other Windows Server 2008 concentrations: as a Server or Enterprise Administrator. Students who earn this certificate may also go on to earn their associate’s or bachelor’s in a related field. The required courses may be completed in approximately just over a year.
